Mothers and eldest daughters... a puzzle of the universe...

Ideal Mother. Myth or Fantasy?


Are there girls out there

With mothers who understand,

Who aren’t told from youth

That they come from a different land?


Are there girls with mothers

Who are happy to let them be?

Who don’t desire to control them

Or criticise them manipulatively?

Who accept and love unconditionally

And not completely selfishly?


How about girls with mothers

Who don’t believe

That push-up bra’s and mini’s

Are a woman’s destiny?


Are there girls out there who are blessed?

Ones who aren’t jealous,

Of others with mothers,

Who don’t leave them totally stressed?


Most of all, at the top of the list,

Are there any mothers anywhere

Who practice their daughter’s love language,

Nurture their souls and don’t leave them in despair?

good poem and yet I feel a lot of daughters feel like this exspecially at the teen ages it's not till you become a mother yourself can you come to a full understanding of what it is to be a mother and some of the things you thought wrong you see other things instead that they did wrong and some of those same things you hated you now respect. it's funny how having children changes your prospective on mother hood you see a lot differently yet some the same.
